Always nice to travel through beautiful countries like Iceland. But when there is a volcanic eruption at the same moment you are in the country, the chase begins...

On the first day we managed to get some framefilling shots using a 300mm lens (on FX). There is no way to get any closer than that without taking an expensive airplane flight.

We even managed to get some northern lights in the same picture.

But on the second day we climbed the Snaeffellskali mountain (in extreme wind and cold) and had the 'honour'  to watch the volcano under the most beautiful northern light I have ever seen. Epic!
